    These are absolutely beautiful, very close coloring to Leather Soul's shortwing ravello makeup. In a couple days you won't even notice that spot. I would not return them.

    Hello, Alden fans :)

    I am about to buy The Classic Alden PTB Color 8 (#990). The thing is the famous store such as leather soul, leffot, the shoemart, even alden shop are sold out of my size :(

    But, I found Sherman Brothers still have my sizes.
    But, the problem is when i was too happy to check out, the description says "Barrie Last - Double Oak Leather Outsoles. Aberdeen Last - Double oak leather outsoles."
    Normally, Alden PTB is in Barrie Last, rite?

    So, has anyone here have an experience bought from Sherman Brothers, especially Alden PTB Color 8? So, what last is it, Barrie or Aberdeen?

    Thanks in advance :)

    Whiskey has really grown on me lately. I'm amazed by the variance in whiskey colors, from pretty light to fairly dark and close to Ravello. I think whiskey also ages very well. These LWB look great!

    See Ya,
    Steve

    Besides BB Unlined LHS, does anybody else stock an unlined without the flex sole? The flex is not my favorite sole..

    NST monks. Very sharp. But for the days when one could have Alden to make something custom. In those days I was able to get George boots - made in five Horween cordovan colors (at least the five I know of). some may think NST monks are too busy, but not this observer. Thanks for the picture.

    nephew,
    from my experience, the two eyelet chukkas in 9 D were to big whereas, the six eyelet chukkas in 9 D fit very well

    Vacation last week, so I've been out of the loop for a bit (does Alden make beach sandals?)
    This!

    And today, new OTC argyles (cotton for the summer) and Snuff Suede

    nephew,
    enjoy wearing your argyles, good looking combo
